Canada Immigration -
Federal skilled workers

Did you know?
  1. There is currently a high demand for qualified workers in Canada.
  2. Immigrants are essential in meeting Canada’s labour market needs.
  3. Canada has accepted - and will continue - to accept thousands of permanent and temporary residents.
Within the next decade, due to Canada’s aging population, immigration is projected to account for all net labour force growth in Canada. Two-thirds of the available jobs will require post-secondary education and the jobs requiring a university-level education or technical/trade will be the fastest growing types of jobs in Canada.

Skilled workers, in particular, do well in Canada. With their generic skill set, they are more successful in the labour market than other immigrants, catching up to their Canadian counterparts more quickly and earning higher than average incomes.

To determine your eligibility to apply for a permanent resident visa under the “Federal Skilled Worker” category, you will be assessed based on six (6) selection factors - set in place to evaluate your likelihood and ability to become economically established in Canada.

The Federal skilled worker selection factors are:
  • Education
  • Language proficiency (in English or French)
  • Work experience
  • Age
  • Arranged employment in Canada (work permit or permanent job offer)
  • Adaptability (spouse’s education and family in Canada)
As a Canadian skilled worker, you must also show to the Canadian Authorities that you have enough money to support yourself (and your dependants) after your arrival in Canada (although some exceptions apply).

To be issued a permanent resident visa under this category, you must:
  • obtain at least 67 points on the Federal Selection grid;
  • successfully pass a selection interview with an immigration officer (or be exempted thereof), and;
  • pass a medical examination and security/criminal background checks.
